updated 01:50 pm EDT, Tue August 9, 2011

Uses holographic laser to create touchable image

Light Blue Optics' pico projector has reached the FCC for approval. The Light Touch uses a combination of holographic laser projection (HLP) and infrared sensors to create a virtual WVGA touchscreen on any flat surface. The image can be up to 10.1 inches in size.

The pico projector has an output of 35 lumens for images and up to 15 lumens for videos. It incorporates a mono speaker, a 3.5mm stereo out jack, composite video input, and micro USB. It also has integrated 802.11g Wi-Fi. It runs Windows CE and Adobe Flash Lite 3.1. The user interface is sourced from UI Centric. It comes powered by a lithium-ion rechargeable battery.

Colorado Springs-based Light Blue Optics was founded in 2006. To date, the company has raised over $56 million in funding. In addition to Light Touch, the company is developing HLP display systems for cars and wide angle projectors for curved surfaces. [via Engadget]
